A student who was hours from death when she was diagnosed with a huge brain tumour has stunned doctors by making an incredible recovery.
Emma Bassett was diagnosed with a deadly brain tumour seven years ago and it was only a roller coaster ride that means she is still alive today.
It reversed her prognosis after the vigorous ride re-distributed the fluid that had been causing a dangerous pressure on her skull.
Emma Bassett said "They showed me a scan of my brain and the tumour was enormous. I told them I'd been to Thorpe Park and on all the roller coasters with my friends, and they said that had saved my life.
